Palin for Punchlines '09

Oh, man, did you hear about the Morgans? Word has it that Morgan Freeman and Morgan Fairchild hooked up in an Iowa truck stop bathroom over the weekend; TMZ has the pics. But that’s not who I’m here to talk about.

No, I’m afraid that my priorities are much further aligned to the fates of Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker, cast in Did You Hear About the Morgans? as a squabbling couple forced to re-kindle their relationship in the terrifically non-metropolitan likes of Wyoming, where it’s mostly sunny, with 50 percent chance of hilarity ensuing. That’s right, ladies and gents: you get all of the contrived relationship frenzy of a Failure to Launch combined with the fish-out-of-water antics of your Mickey Blue Eyes, two broad and bland rom-coms for the price of one.

Truth be told, it could be worse (read: it could be All About Steve), but everything on display in this trailer is so vigorously mediocre, like eating lukewarm tapioca off a manila envelope, and then realizing you bit into Parker’s chin mole somewhere along the way. Her offer probably read “It’s like Sex and the City, but in the country and sans sex,” followed by eight figures. I imagine that Grant got the call while removing the barrel of a Beretta from his mouth and whimpering “they like me, they really like me” over and over and over again.

Anyway, bears chase people, and as the Old Dogs trailer has proven without fail, that spells c-o-m-e-d-y. This one drops on December 18th, folks — buy your tickets now, lest you get stuck seeing Avatar instead.
